The challenge this fortnight at Make it Colourful is to color sheer or see through clothing. My first attempt was to color Annabella from Make it Crafty. The lower part of the skirt and the fabric around the arm were indented to me sheer. I colored the arm and wire frame first then lightly went over with E40, E41, E42, and E43 to manage a sheer look.
As for a challenge, I wasn’t completely satisfied with my effect so I gave it another go. This time I found Ben in the Rain by Whiff of Joy and thought I could give him a clear raincoat and umbrella. It was on this image that I discovered the techniques of coloring are pretty similar to “coloring with no lines” challenge.
The third image is Marissa Fairy by Paper Makeup Stamps and her skirt turned out to be a great dance cover. Again, I colored the skin and leotard first then lightly went in with the pink in the shaded areas. Some areas were darker than I wanted to so that’s where I used the Blender Pen to lighten it up.
In the end, the hardest part about this challenge was to find a viable image to work on without coloring someone naked! Maybe I need to look for more images… sounds like a good excuse to me to go shopping! 😀 Next week I should have these images on a project.
